Burnley, 05-12-18, PL (A)

What a stroke of luck we got in the derby, cheers pickford and Origi of course. Disgraceful that Klopp has been charged over his celebration, what moriniho did last week was much worse but no charge for him, anyway, onto the team.

Is it time to give Firmino a rest and bench him for a game or two, i think so, he's been way off form all season, we have Studge, Origi and Solanke who can come in and give Klopp something else to think about but i'm screwed if i know which one although i am…

Everton, 02-12-18, PL (H)

Quick one for you guys, on my way to work. i'm going for a similar team to the one against PSG exceprt i'm dropping Firmino and having a 4-3-1-2 setup with Mane and Salah up front with Shaqiri in behind them. My midfield would be Milner, Fabinho and Keita, back 4 of Arnold, Gomez, VVD and Robertson.

                                                                 Alisson

                                              Arnold     Gomez   VVD    Robertson

PSG, 28-11-18, CL (A)

A few different ways we can qualify, i'm sure you know them all so i won't bore you with them. As usual the front 3 picks itself but there may be a bit of a shuffle at the back, has Lovren earned himself a slot beside VVD and will Klopp move Gomez to RB, not for me, i feel Arnold deserves to start, he's getting back to some good form and his recent goals will have given him a confidence boost, it's the midfield that is always so difficult to pick. Will Klopp go for the experience (Milner,…

Watford, 24-11-18, PL (A)

Finaly, back to the Lge action and a possible tricky away game at watford, their flying high and their confidence will also be high so we need to be on our game here i feel. Having said that we've been winning ugly most of the season so i do expect us to win this one, onto the team.

As far as i can see we have no new injury concerns after the international break so again i think the back 5 and front 3 pick themselves but as usual the midfield is tricky to call. There's a lot of people…

Fulham, 11-11-18, PL (H)

I don't think i need to say anything about tuesday night's game so i won't. I'm hoping it's a good thing that we have the team bottom of the Lge up next so it should be a great chance to bounce straight back with a good result/performance. Let's get onto the team.

4 of the back 5 picks itself but what about Arnold now that he's in a dip of form, is there a case for giving Clyne a start here? possibly. The midfield as usual will always throw up a debate so here's one for you, have we…

Redstar, 06-11-18, CL (A)

Back to CL action now after a bit of a disappointing result against arsenal after we were leading but still a point away to a reguvinated arsenal is not the end of the world. 

We comfortably beat Redstar at anfield but we may not have it as easy away even though i do expect us to win. I think we'll see a few changes for this game with the likes of  Sturridge, Moreno and Keita Starting, we may even see Mignolet between the sticks, Could we even see Lovren and Matip as our central…

Arsenal, 03-11-18, PL (A)

Apologies for my absence guys, ive been away on holiday. A big thanks to Hutonian for posting the match blogs.

The games between us and the gunners are normaly crackers and this should be no exception. I have to admit i'm a little worried about this fixture as arsenal are in great form so far this season while we have been winning most of our games we are not really playing well but maybe with Salah back scoring it will give the team a boost and hopefully kick start our season…

CARDIFF CITY, 27-10-18, PL (H)

What has happened to our master poster Warrior?  There's been nothing from him since Harry Wilson's goal sunk Ireland 10 days ago!  So it looks like I'll have to step in again.  It would not surprise me if Klopp plays the same team as against Red Star.  He doesn't have to save players for mid-week as we have no game until Saturday.   However he may want to give Joe Gomez a rest and may not want to play Fabinho twice in a few days with him still reaching match fitness.  So my predicted team…

RED STAR BELGRADE, 24-10-18, CL, (H)

After the last minute defeat at Napoli this is a must win game as will be the corresponding away game in Belgrade.  I would expect a strong team as Red Star are in good form barring their capitulation in Paris.  With our current lack of offensive form we may have to be patient and cannot expect to roll over opponents like we did at times last season.  Having said that I'm confident we will re-find the goal scoring touch before too long.  As far as the team is concerned Henderson and Keita…

HUDDERSFIELD, 20-10-18, (A), PL

Nobody seemed interested in posting a pre-match blog on this game but now its taken place a few may wish to comment.  I thought it was our worst domestic performance of the season (Napoli was worse) and we were fortunatee to come away with the points.  Huddersfield fought really hard, which ws predicatable, and played rather well, which wasn't, but even so we should have cntrolled the game much better.  Some of our play in the final third was really sloppy and the decision making was often…

City, 07-10-18, PL (H)

After a disappointing result and performance against napoli we now have the pleasure of hosting our title rivals. Will this game decide where the title goes, of course not, will it give the winners a massive confidence boost, yes it will but going on current form the winner won't be us, anyway, onto the team.

Think we pretty much know who the back 5 will be so it's just the midfield and up front that's up for debate. We all know that Salah, Mane and Firmino are not on their game right…

Napoli, 03-10-18, CL (A)

Hey Red, anyone can start a matchday blog mate, please feel free to do so at anytime.

I can only see one maybe two changes for this game, the one change i would make would be dropping Hendo and starting Keita, i just don't see what Hendo brings to this team but that's just my opinion. I'm also tempted to drop one of the usual front three but which one i'm unsure about, maybe Salah but he did look a bit better against chelsea so maybe he's on his way back to top form and we don't want…

Chelsea, 29-09-18, PL (A)

Not sure how you guys feel about last nights result but it didn't bother me in the slightest, this game is far more important imo. Our winning streak was always going to end at some stage so i'm just happy it hasn't cost us 3 points, a chance of some silverware, yes but it's at the bottom of the priority list for me, anyway, back to buisiness with the Lge.

Again, it's just the midfield that is hard to call, back 5 is obvious as is the front 3 so who will Klopp choose. I keep beating…

Chelsea, 26-09-18, LC (H)

Im expect wholesale changes here, i know it's very early in the season to be talking about resting players but do we really care if we progress in this competition, not me and besides we have chelsea in a far more important game next Saturday. My team for this game would be, 

                                                           Mignolet

                                         Clyne     Matip    Gomez     Moreno

                                               Keita   …

Southampton, 22-09-18 (H) PL

The games are coming thick and fast now with the latest being a visit from the saints. Great win over PSG the other night, delighted we got one over on that idiot neymar but i'm sure they'll be looking for revenge in the home tie. Anyway, on to this game.

I really think Klopp should make a few changes here and for the Lge cup game against chelsea, imo, we have top backup players so we should have enough to beat the saints no matter who he starts. I would definitely take Salah out, his…

PSG, 18-09-18, (H) CL

Great result yesterday against one of the top 6 teams but that's done, now onto the CL and a visit from PSG and that complete and utter tool Neymar, can't stand him.

I think Klopp has to make some changes here, That incident with Firmino yesterday looked really nasty, anyone who saw the still photo of it will know what i mean, that eye is bound to be very sore for a few days so i doubt he will play here. I would also rest Mane but i would start Salah as he appears to need the game time…

Spurs, 15-09-18, PL (A)

Seems an age since our last game but thankfully the latest inter break is over and we can now concentrate keeping our great start to the season going.with a tough trip to wembly to play spurs.

Ive been screaming out for Shaqiri to get a start and i feel this is a game for him, Keita must start as well as i feel his absense has made a big difference to our play. I would keep Milner in and have Shaqiri just ahead of Keita and Milner, a 4-2-1-3 if you like, very much an attacking lineup…

Leicester, 01-09-18, (A) PL

After a great start to the season we now have a run of 4 tough games in our next 5 with 3 of the big guns coming up in spurs, city and chelsea. Vardy being banned for this game is a help as he's haunted us in the past, i feel we can go on and make it 4 from 4 here and head into the dreaded international break in the best shape we could have hoped for. I'll get straight onto the team. Klopp looks to be fixed on a certain 11 right now so i can't see any changes it being the last game before…

Brighton, 25-08-18, PL (H)

We couldn't really have asked for much more from the opening two games, 6points, 6 goals for, none against, fantastic and i fully expect that run to continue here. The likes of westham, palace and brighton are the very teams that we need to be beating to sustain a title run so so far so good.

How do you begin to pick a team for this game but i'll give it a go or at least give my selection. Shaqiri played no part against palace so i would give him a start here. Studge only had a couple…

Palace, 20-09-18 (A) PL

A great start to the season with a very convincing win over the hammers and so onto another team that has caused us problems in the past but i truly believe those day's are gone now with the squad we have now.

It's really difficult now to pick teams such is our squad but i think we can safely say the likes Alisson, VVD, Robertson and Gomez are certain to start here but Klopp may just change things further up the pitch. I know it's very early day's for resting players but i'm wondering…

This is almost a guarenteed 3points, can never be sure but very confident of a win here. Think we'll see Fabinho back from the start alongside Wijaldum and Milner, rest of the team picks itself.                                                       …
